About Me

I was born in Luton, known for hat making, Vauxhall cars, London Luton Airport and a great football team who once beat Arsenal at Wembley in a Cup Final, currently languishing in non-league football for the 4th season. I moved to Edinburgh in 1990 and now live in Leith, Edinburgh's 'waterfront'.

Married for 24 years to Louise (who is on day release from Fife), I have 4 children: Holly (aged 28) who's studying medicine at Dundee University, William (aged 26) at the Army Foundation College, Harrogate, Alice (aged 23) and Maddie (aged 16).

We live in a 226 year old Georgian house which we are slowly renovating. We once had a note from an artist posted through the letterbox asking if our semi-derelict house was available to rent as studio space. Things have improved lately; the stonework has been repaired and we have shiny new railings. Just the inside to do now then.

Current CNPS score: 999

    Lighten Up!

    A few weeks ago I noticed a change in the spam arriving in my Inbox. Instead of the usual ‘Vi*gR4’, ‘v1A6rA’, ‘vi4Gra’, every other one seemed to mention my weight. The spammers had started targeting me personally (which they weren’t doing before, obviously). Or maybe I just realised I was becoming a little too large.

    Nothing for it, a diet was the only answer. And, with typical scientific precision (being the nerdy type that I am), it’s working! You can see my progress (along with the contents of my bowels) here on Fitday.
